Abstract
    Traditional (cohesive) sediment transport models contain several simplifications which are no longer justifiable when sediment concentrations or stratification effects become significant. This paper gives a rather technical overview of various modifications to a sediment transport model with k-8 turbulence closure, used as research tool, in order to improve the physics described by the model. The attention is focussed on the modelling of sediment-turbulence interactions.
